Join Bedford Audubon naturalist Tait Johansson for a walk through
Bedford Audubon’s lesser known sanctuary in North Salem. The preserve has a few steep inclines and generally provides for easy walking. Bring binoculars. This walk is in memory of Andrew Reynolds, known to us as “Drew,” who died suddenly on February 7, 2008. The inaugural walk was held on March 18, 2008. Drew was a long-time friend, member and supporter of Bedford Audubon. Since one of Drew’s main contributions to BAS was surveying and marking the trail system in Franklin-Fels Sanctuary, we feel it appropriate to honor him with an annual walk there. Degree of Difficulty: Easy to Medium.
